This video demo of the mTrip Travel Guides really impressed me. Having seen it, I can't imagine going to one of the 8 cities their cover without first downloading the $5.99 app. There are guides available for London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, New York, San Francisco, and Chicago. One of the features is the ability to automatically generate an itinerary based on a range of preferences. I first watched the video because the press release highlighted the augmented reality features. But what the video shows isn't much like what the press release described. Regardless, I came away impressed.
